That's what I would like.
Ha ha! So many things to do, so little time. So many
things I WANT to do and still no extra time.

I tried my hand at making a cat's head and tail move.

am ::so hooked:: on this free virtual chat world at
IMVU. It is sophisticated and realistic. We talk
and move around like actual people, almost. There are
many scenarios. The nice thing -- it is not game-play,
just friendly chatting and visiting exotic or regular
places. One friend brought me to an underwater scene and
we put on mermaid costumes. In another, I had wings.

EyeQ, told me about this chat and it absorbed
half of my day. This is a fascinating free site where
you design, dress and do a lot with character. You can
change facial expressions, clothes, set the background,
have pets, zoom in and out and around at ANY angle while
you chat with someone in an animated conversation.

No mess, no fuss and no big artistic talent required to design your own online Jack O'Lantern. Here's one I made. After you design it, they put in a candle and light it up for you. (Thanks to Deborah P. for this link.)

You can upload a photo and make yourself into a funny dancing character. I posted mine at My Muglet in Action. The muglet site is located at Muglets.com. This is probably the only way I could ever be a decent dancer. (Click on the picture to see the movie of me in action.) Thanks to Miss E for this link. You can control the dance moves and music choices. (P.S. This was the only feminine character offered at the time. Online, it is located at http://www.muglets.com/1YO2.)

In this one, I tried more complex things -- four movements going on at once. The cat blinks, the pumpkin blinks at 3 levels, each star twinkles (although that is hard to see) and a bat flies speedily across one corner of the sky. Please feel welcome to use these for yourself. I don't know the author of the original picture, though. I think it all goes too fast, but it took a long time to get to this point. I didn't do the littler kitty one. I just thought it was cute.

charming British-humored claymation movie
yesterday. It was adorable! I love how they animated the
dogs -- just plain cute. And British do old people
better than anyone. The children in the audience were
giggling (a great G-rated Halloween movie for even the
littlest children). I know this must have been good
because my husband was NOT looking at his watch. I
highly recommend the movie - there are even some adult
jokes and sight gags which you might miss if you don't
watch closely -- obviously meant for adults -- but in a
